To Try Our Very Best in All We Do

Summer 1

Topic

 

Buckle up, sunglasses on - we're going on a road trip across the good old US of A.

Flying from London Gatwick landing in JFK, it's time to explore the sights and sounds of the Big Apple. 

Use your map skills to navigate your way around some of it's most famous landmarks and send a postcard home to ask the question: Do you wish you were here?

 

 

 

 

Maths

 

In maths this half term we will be consolidating our times tables knowledge and learning all facts up to 12 X 12.

We will continue to build on our knowledge of decimals and how this links to fractions.

As well as this, we will be developing formal written methods for all areas of calculation and applying this to problem solving.

English

 

This half term in English we will have a focus on fiction writing. We will base our writing on 'The Cricket in Times Square'. Before writing we will do lots of work getting to know the text and orally re-telling it. We will then move on to writing our own stories based on the text.

 

We will then begin to look at Non Chronological reports. Learning about both the structural and language features and creating our own reports based on Crickets.
